The story behind Chatelier

Chatelier epitomizes high-performance, luxury skincare with a commitment to natural, organic, ethical, sustainable, and cruelty-free products of the highest purity and efficacy.

The mission, The name, and The lifestyle

A Brand Born from a Need for Ethical Luxury

Chatelier was born from the discovery of a study by 'Rank a Brand', an independent European organization that ranks brands based on their health and environmental priorities. The 2018 study revealed that most luxury skincare brands scored poorly in areas such as environmental impact, health, animal welfare, climate, and labor conditions. Our founder, Laura Kaats, decided the world needed a luxury skincare brand that not only performed exceptionally naturally but also prioritized the planet, people, and animals.

The name Chatelier was inspired by the 'Law of Le Chatelier', a law that Laura, learned about during her Chemistry studies at the University. The law of Le Chatelier reflect the idea of molecules always returning to balance and harmony. We believe a natural lifestyle fosters balance and harmony, and our natural skincare products are designed to create that harmony and balance in the skin that will generate healthy and resilient skin.

It is Chatelier’s mission to help people feel great in their skin by offering luxurious, pure self-care products that create beautiful, healthy skin. We aim to make choices that care for the environment, animals, and people, ensuring that every Chatelier product embodies this commitment.

Our key values

Commitment to Sustainability and Ethics

Environment: We use organically farmed ingredients to promote healthy soils, biodiversity and ecosystems. Our packaging materials are FSC-certified, recycled, and easily recyclable, with minimal plastic usage.

Health: Our products feature clean, gentle, natural ingredients that deliver highly effective results for skin health. Chatelier products are formulated without: Toxins / Parabens / Mineral oils / Synthetic dyes / Animal testing / Animal-derived ingredients / Nano-materials / Mined materials / Phthalates / GMOs / PEGs.

Animal Welfare: We are proudly cruelty-free, using no animal products or testing on animals.

Labor Conditions: We avoid ingredients that may be harvested under poor labor conditions and prioritize certified organic ingredients to ensure fair wages for farmers.

Climate & Tree Planting: We aim to keep our footprint small by maintaining most production processes within Europe and plant a tree for every product sold.

Every time you buy one of our products, we'll plant a tree. Since 2020, we’ve planted trees in the Amazon rainforest ('20 & '21), Africa ('22), and the Andean mountains ('23). Planting trees adds nutrients to soil, controls erosion, and enhances biodiversity, helping to combat climate change. This initiative also supports local communities by creating jobs and improving food security through fruit tree planting.

Sustainable & luxurious

Packaging Inspired by Elegance and Nature

With the planet facing challenges like resource depletion, forest fires, and plastic waste, we are committed to doing things differently. We use glass bottles, which are highly recyclable, and FSC-certified cartons for our packaging. We also minimize plastic use and ensure our packaging materials are easily recyclable.

Chatelier's packaging draws inspiration from the enchanting Chateau du Chatelier nestled in the French countryside. Our sophisticated glass bottles embody the essence of elegance within a natural setting, seamlessly blending refined beauty with pure, natural ingredients.

We go through a long curation process

Sourcing Practices

Certification and Standards: We prioritize ingredients that are certified organic by reputable organizations. We ensure that the ingredients meet stringent standards for organic farming, processing, and handling.

Safety Evaluation: We evaluate the safety profile of each ingredient by reviewing scientific studies, toxicity data, and regulatory assessments.

Purity and Quality: We source ingredients from trusted suppliers known for their commitment to quality, purity, and sustainability.

Efficacy and Functionality: We select ingredients based on their proven efficacy in addressing specific skincare concerns, such as hydration, anti-aging, brightening, soothing, loss of firmness, etc. We look for ingredients that are supported by scientific research demonstrating their effectiveness.

Ethical and Sustainable Sourcing: We prioritize ingredients sourced from ethical and sustainable suppliers who uphold fair labor practices, environmental stewardship, and biodiversity conservation. We support local farmers and communities whenever possible.

Minimal processing for maximum results

High-Performance, Natural Skincare

Chatelier formulates highly concentrated, natural skincare products that promote healthy, resilient skin, protecting against early aging. Our minimalistic approach avoids unnecessary and non-clean ingredients, preserving valuable vitamins and minerals for higher-performing products. Most of our ingredients come from organic farming, which offers higher nutrient concentrations than traditional farming, resulting in superior skin benefits. Organic ingredients contain about 12-16% more antioxidants than non-organic ingredients¹.

Unlike many conventional products that overly refine their formulas, stripping away natural colors and scents to add artificial ones, we keep our ingredients as close to their natural state as possible. This minimal processing preserves vital vitamins and minerals, ensuring that our products deliver real, long-lasting results of the highest purity.

With Chatelier's Duo Skincare Technology™ we ensure these highly potent ingredients get absorbed into the deepest layers of the skin for maximum benefits, while activating the microbiome - the skin's outer protective layer.

¹A meta-analysis published in the "British Journal of Nutrition" in 2014 analyzed 343 peer-reviewed publications comparing the nutritional quality of organic and conventional crops. The researchers found that organically grown crops had higher levels of certain antioxidants, such as phenolic acids, flavonoids, and anthocyanins.
